Hi /diy/nos!
Listen, not much of an electro guy. Yet.
I'm into chemistry and I'm playing with electrolisys reactions, or at least i want to.
I need SOMETHING that will convert my AC current in DC current with known voltage and current.
For the little i know, a recifier is used to convert AC to DC, yet current and voltage are variables that i can't understand how to control in this process. So, i ask to you:
Can such a thing as a rectifier-voltage-current-controler-o-tron be built?
If yes, which is it's real name for googling purposes?

Would a CB suffice for a guerrilla force attempting to operate against a much larger/well equipped military?

There are commercial off the shelf items you can buy with encryption. Look for digital radios, analog is not encryptable unless you cypher it somehow.

Of course this being /diy/ I have to suggest a /diy/ solution which would be software defined radio. Can do analog or digital on the fly and you can choose your own encryption or modulation. Not really something for a casual user but there are some pre builts that probably have enough documentation for someone to use
>>
>>989158
1. Get in with your local hams. Yes, you have local hams, and they can tell you all about the radio netwrok that exists around your locality and how not to inadvertantly infringe upon it, which could result in fines. Get your ham operator licence.
2. If you invest in something with off the shelf encryption, ensure that the encryption is actually secure/programmable, not something that can be googled or is found in the equipment's manual.

>How does a short band radio work?
By short band, do you mean UHF or VHF or what?
>Would a CB suffice for a guerrilla force attempting to operate against a much larger/well equipped military?
You could communicate with each other, but everybody would be able to hear you
>Is it possible/easy to encrypt a CB to prevent unwanted listeners?
It's possible, but I'm pretty sure it's illegal, although the FCC doesn't give a flying fuck about what happens on CB...

I'm interested in woodwork and have a few projects I would like to start in my home as practise to really get into it.
I have experience with saw machines.
I would like to make furniture and other small things.
What machines and handtools are a complete must for starting my own hobby workshop in my garage?
Also what are good brands?
I already own a hand saw, every type of "bolt/screw turner" you can think of, hammers etc. Also the only machine I currently own is a sandpaper machine and a drilling machine(it's shit though and I need a replacement)

Hello, /diy/.

I'm making a project where I'll be using a lot of 3W LEDs, from various colours. As so, each colour have a different tension to be used. I will not buy a LED driver module, so I decided to build something similar to the pic related here. I was drawing mine, but I ran out of time.

Anyway, the question is: I want to adjust the brightness of all LEDs together, but every colour is under a different tension, controlled by an LM317 (or some similar, doesn't matter for the question).

Does a simple potentiometer before the regulators...

Seriously, did you even read the datasheet? The circuit for an lm317 current regulator contains the lm317 itself and a single potentiometer. Just adjust the potentiometer to adjust the current.
>>
>>999577

No, my dear friend. You are the one that didn't read what I said.

The potentiometer that you are referring to is the one to correct the tension of the output of the LM317. I am aware of it, and that is exactly why I am using these.

My question is, considering the LM317 adjusted to 2,6V, another one to 3,6V and other 3 to 4,1V, how could I control the intake current of all of them together, so all the LEDs are regulated together, from zero volts to the desired tension adjusted on the LM317.
>>
>>999577

Better yet. The circuit in your image. I want to control the intake of various of them together. Think about 5 of those in your image, each one with a different setting on the potentiometer shown.

From zero to the desired tension, of all of them. This is the question. Simply putting a potentiometer before them? (before the intake?)

I want to add chicken wire to the bottom of our garage side door to keep any animals out.

We are cleaning our garage and our side door that we are blocking with a shelf has a 3-4 inch gap on the bottom for safety (exhaust buildup, etc). We were given a roll of chicken wire and were told that we should attach it to the bottom of the door to keep any rats, possums, etc out.

But I'm in a bind as to how to do this because I'm a moron. Would I want to glue the wire to the door? Are there bolts to bolt it on? And would i just leave it hanging on the bottom,...

small animals can still get through that

I would use some 1x2 strips to make a little box insert to fit under the door, you could screw it to the bottom of the door to secure it

secure some window screen to the frame with staples, then put chicken wire on top

I'm with the second anon in that chix wire doesn't work that well.

I'd go with hardware cloth.

OP, are you saying you will not be using the garage door ever? It will stay closed permanently?
>>
>>999363
Use 1/4" hole Hardware Cloth wire not, chicken wire. Chicken wire is the worst shit ever and rusts out inside of two years. Use screws with large washers to install it. If you are drilling into metal, use self-tapping screws.

So I got this Briggs and Stratton 3.5HP engine with a vertical shaft from a lawnmower. I would use it for a project like a kart or drift trike but then my best option is to convert it to a horizontal shaft. As I don't have a lot of experience with fabricating, I'm looking for other ideas. The thing is, I can't get that thing off where the blade is supposed to be connected to. So I can't really use 45 degree gears.

So my question: what do I do?

You're kinda fucked mate. The gearbox or whatever contraption you fabricate to turn that into a horizontal will be more of a headache than selling the one you have and buying the right one.

Many people have tried. Few have succeeded. Check out gokarting forums. I have a kart and I have a horizontal shaft engine.
>>
>>999164
This.
Its not worth the time, effort, money, or weight to build a gearbox for it. And a gearbox is the only way you would be able to do it.

Cut your losses and get another motor. Also realize that a go kart will nickel and dime the fuck out of you, so the motor is not necessarily the biggest expense.

Heyo /Diy/

I have come looking for advice on the following:

What material/substance should I use to fill 4x7cm holes in the shed roof to ensure a nice airtightness when constructing an effective chimney flue? I will attach an illistration to help describe what I mean... I am talking about the gap caused when you place corrigated iron on top of a brick wall.

Also, any top tips about chimney flues? Aside from the obvious like making the chimney exit higher than the ceiling of the room/building by about 1/2 ft

Corrugated iron flashing, or just a long roll of lead flashing which will mold to almost any shape. if it needs to be airtight, fill the inside with expanding foam to create a seal
>>
>>999068
Did you recently buy the tin? I'd say go back and see if they have anything. Menards sells a foam strip that fits underneath the corrugations on their sheets. If not fiberglass insulation would probably be a good bet.

Also your thread will be around for days no need to bump

its the largest corrigated iron Ive seen in a long time and its been there for what looks like a decade.

Should the expanding foam be any specific make to ensure it wont catch fire when the place gets warm? (this concrete shed is my forge)

Ok so my good ol' recliner is showing its age. The Mechanics and fabric are fine as I do my best to keep them in nice working order and clean. However the foam rubber in the seat is drying out and is literally crumbling away because of the springs rubbing against it. I fear it may soon ware its way through the fabric.

I've come up with a solution of gluing cushion foam to some vinyl shower pan liner and then stuffing it over the springs. The liner should be strong enough to resist ware from the springs for a long time, but I don't know what type of glue...
